The markets of Mazarin District are well worth exploring, as are the Granet Museum and the Paul Arbaud Museum.

                                                        Wonderful garden, beautiful surroundings

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        We spent two weeks at the house, with extended family: Kids aged 2-18, and parents. Maybe the best vacation we ever had! In between the quiet days at the house we saw several football games at the Euro 2016. The kitchen is well equipped - there is a blender to make smoothies, and all you need to have a barbecue. If there is one thing that could be improved, it must be the somewhat blunt kitchen knives. The ice cube machine was very popular, as the temperature in the garden was about 30+ almost every afternoon. Lots of things to do - if the kids got tired of trampoline, there was always some other sport equipment to take out from the garden shed. As we live in a much more urban area ourselves, the variety of birds and insects were particularly interesting for the kids. A huge bee swarm passed by the house one day, there were grasshoppers and other insects in all colors in all sizes and colors, and rabbits, bats and lizards (but luckily only a few mosquito, we could sit out in the garden until late without problems). We even thought we saw a hummingbird on one of the garden flowers - it turned out to be a "hummingbird hawk-moth" after doing some research (Macroglossum stellatarum), but still caused a lot of excitement! You really get a feeling of being in the countryside when you are standing in "your own" garden, patting the neighbor's horses on the other side of the fence. The pool was of course the main gathering point - big enough also for the older kids to have fun. If the adults wanted a quiet moment with a book the garden is big enough for that as well. The "Intermarche" supermarket in Venelles is 5 min away with a car - it has a good selection of fresh seafood, vegetables, cheese etc. This was very convenient, and we prepared most of our dinners in the "garden kitchen", instead of going out to eat. Even closer is the bakery, where we could pick up fresh bread every morning. I am back in Norway now writing this, at work, it's 12 degrees and raining. The holiday was wonderful, we all have good memories. the weather was perfect, but what we miss most is the garden and quiet days around the pool. Thanks for having us!

                                                        Absolutely brilliant!

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        Me and my family stayed there for 5 nights last week, and the apartment was very nice, very well decorated house with very big freezer and a cooler, tv, washing machine and yeah just had everything you could wish for. The tennis court and the swimming pool is just awesome! The location is fine, at first it seemed a little out of nowhere but then we just figured out the bus goes from the next rotary and takes like 3-5 minutes, and if you take taxi you just say you're going to the Red Peppers, which is a great restaurant 150 metres away from the property. The owners are very comfortable and trusting people aswell, so yeah this has absolutely everything you could ask for. Unless you want to party hardcore..
